#2550813 An amazing day for a family of Red Wings fans

Posted by Red Crazy on 21 November 2014 - 04:09 PM

I thought I would share this with you fellow Wings fans.

 

My family lives in Manitoba and I have been a Wing fan since the mid 80`s so I guess my passion for the team has been passed on to first my wife and now our two boys age 6 and 8. Getting tickets in Winnipeg is usually next to impossible and the thought of getting 4 together is just a dream unless you wanted to pay 2-300 on stubhub. But by luck I was able to get 4 tickets from a season ticket holder that couldn`t attend so we were all set!!!

 

We are about 2.5 hours drive to Winnipeg so we booked a hotel next to the arena. It turned out that the Wings were staying at the same hotel! We met Bill Roose when we were checking in and he said to hang out in the lobby because the players will be coming down soon to get onto a bus for the arena. We got to meet most of the players and my boys were lucky enough to get 10-12 autographs each! We saw all the Detroit t.v guys etc. It was unbelievable!!! The players were so nice to their fans and taking pictures with the boys.

 

When we got over to the arena we asked to go down to ice level to watch warm ups. Many of the players tapped on the glass and smiled to the boys. Tatar even tossed a puck over the glass to them! 

 

It was a great game to watch! 

 

Anyways I wanted to share this story for those interested. The Red Wings are a class act all the way! From their security guys right to the players! Thank you Red Wings for making a dream come true for our family. We will remember the day forever.

This is the price Holland pays for keeping Cleary around....

Is it just me or does Mantha sound more foreign than most of our Swedish and Russian players? 

 

Edit: and holy s*** I just had the sound on and had to scroll up. I could have swore that was Babcock not Blashill

Great to see Ericsson go after Nolan for that hit from behind. 

 

Had they actually squared off Ericsson would've had his hands full with Nolan, but I still like that he went right at him.

 

Im' a fan of Nolan generally, but that was a clear hit from behind.  Looking away isn't an excuse for hitting a guy in the numbers.

Were they booing when Nyquist got first star or did I just mishear that?

 

They were probably yelling Goooooose.

That is my son! He was estastic when he got home with it! He even told me he was gonna learn to shoot righty (he's a lefty). Was a awesome act by Tootoo, and I know my son will not soon forget the gesture.

Posted by Dabura on 31 March 2014 - 02:15 AM

The wings playing Pittsburgh, then Philly/nyr would be the best outcome

 

It's weird. If this were pretty much any other season except this one, I'd want the Flyers or Rangers like whoa. But this season? They both scare me.

 

(Not counting my chickens, just saying.)


I think we need more Swedes.
Does anyone know where we can find more Swedes?
